The extraordinary story of Marty Ferrara, a longshoreman who challenges the mobsters and gangs of 50s New York and takes a stand against the corruption he witnesses from the authorities who control the docks. The story of a close-knit community grappling with a world of crime and punishment, of changing industry and immigration from abroad, The Hook
is a study in integrity and betrayal, charting one man's struggle for meaningful change. World Premiere. Amidst the political tensions of 1950s America, Arthur Miller's The Hook
was banned by the FBI for fear that it could cause unrest in New York's dockyards. Sixty years later, to mark the centenary of the great playwrights' birth, we present the world premiere of Miller's 'play for the screen' in an adaptation by Ron Hutchinson.Performers Jesse Jones (assistant), Jamie Sives (Marty Ferrera), Susie Trayling (Therese), Joseph Alessi, Tom Canton, Ewart James Walters, Jem Wall, Paul Rattray, Sean Aydon, Tim Chipping, Sean Jackson, Sean Murray.
